10) Black Stone Cherry – “Lonely Train”
Kentucky hard rock band Black Stone Cherry exploded onto the scene with their debut single “Lonely Train” in 2006, from their self-titled debut album. WWE loved it so much that the song was used as the theme song for the 2006 Great American Bash PPV before landing on WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2007. In one 2017 interview with Songfactsvocalist Chris Robertson had this to say about the melody:
“That song was the first single we ever released, so it was kind of like our introduction to the world. We wrote that song after talking to a group of our buddies, older and our age, who had serving in the United States Armed Forces The things they went through and their coming home was the inspiration behind the song.
